  • Rose takes care of an ill Charlie

  • I hate how Rose has gone from ingenious and funny to the typical creepy stalker. As a character she has completely lost focus and this proves it

    • Berta: What's wrong with you? Charlie: I caught something. Berta: There's a surprise.

    • Jake: Hey, Rose, you wanna go see a movie later? Rose: Maybe. We'll see how your uncle's feeling. He's very, very sick. Alan: So, basically, what we're saying here is, you'll go to the movies with anybody but me. Jake: Not "anybody"—I wouldn't go with Hitler.

    • Charlie: (to his congested date) You can use this. Lulu: Nasal spray—thank you, Charlie, that's so thoughtful. Charlie: Well, you are gonna need to breathe through your nose.

    • Alan: Rose got you sick? It had nothing to do with you sticking your tongue down the throat of a flu-riddled bimbo?

    • Charlie: Mommy, I don't feel good. Evelyn: Oh, Charles, don't tell me you've got another case of the Bangkok drippy-drip.

    Allusions (2)

    • As Charlie decides what he needs to help himself recover from his cold, he continues to add one more thing (cough medicine, Scotch, etc.), mimicking Steve Martin's moving-out scene (depicted in print ads) where Martin continues to add 'one more thing' he needs as he leaves his Bel Air mansion in the 1979 movie The Jerk.

    • Charlie refers to Rose as, "Nurse Ratched", comparing her to the malevolent nurse from Ken Kesey's 1962 novel/Milos Forman's 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
